Weekend Writing Warriors #8sunday

#sexy snippet & #mysexysaturday

The Weekend Writing Warriors share  8 sentences over the weekend. Here are mine from the start of a historical novel set in Victorian London called THE VEILED HEART ( formerly Lily & the Mechanic).    

The mechanic, has found a way to meet Lily…..

 

London 1898

Lily gave the cab driver directions home and stepped into the carriage.

The vehicle lurched forward.

A sound, like the grinding of bones, rumbled through the cabin of the carriage. It immediately changed to a shrill scream of metal dragging against metal. The horses whinnied and jostled, jerking the carriage over to the right and then back again. The cabbie, shouted at then, his boots loud thumps on the platform. The cab drew to a bouncing stop.

There were a few colorful phrases before the driver opened the door ,“trouble with the wheel m’lady.”
